“I decided to study in the Institute of Fine Arts and continue working on my art, but I was going to have to leave my parents and live in the dormitories, which was difficult for me. I stayed in the dormitories for 5 years all while my parents were always in my mind. I was the youngest kid in the house and very close to my parents. When I finished studying in the Institute I graduated with good grades and was able to continue studying in College. I was struggling financially and my mother was ill. I really wanted to work to support my mother so after just 1 year in college I found a job and was hired. I immediately left college and started working so I can have some money as soon as possible to give it to my mother. At the time, I had to work for three months until I got my first paycheck. Unfortunately, my mother passed away before I received any money. I was very behind for my studies, but after three 3 I returned to college and graduated, and also got married.”
